General Code Updates
The City of Driggs will be reviewing the Driggs City Code, and recommending updates and general housekeeping changes to City Council over the next several months. These changes are in preparation for the occasional 'codification' of all city ordinances, last performed in 2010.
In order to simplify this process, and reduce costs as much as possible, the code will be reviewed in various 'chunks'. The process starts with a staff recommendation for a specific chunk, which will be reviewed by City Council at a work session. Following each work session, an Ordinance will be drafted for the changes recommended.
Currently the expected schedule for this review is as follows, though this may change at any time. Changes will be posted on our website as they become available.
'Chunk 1': November 2nd, 2015 (UPDATED 10/28/15) Regular City Council Meeting: (Work Session Held September 1, 2015)
Title 1 - Administration
'Chunk 2': ( UPDATED 10/28/15) - November 17th, 2015 Regular City Council Meeting – work session:
- Title 2 – Boards and Commissions
- Title 4 – Health, Sanitation, and Environment
'Chunk 3': December – work session to be scheduled:
- Title 5 – Public Safety
- Title 6 – Motor Vehicles and Traffic
'Chunk 4': January – work session to be scheduled :
- Title 3 – Business and License Regulations
- Title 7 – Public Ways and Property
Additional 'chunks' to be determined.
The statutory ordinance approval process will be followed by the City Council to adopt the proposed updates and changes. Public Hearings are not required for these changes, but questions and comments are welcome at any time and will be considered. If you have any questions or comments about this process or specifics being proposed, you may view our website, sign up for email updates, or contact the city by phone, email, or in person.
In a separate, but parallel process, the City Planning and Zoning Commission is working on recommendations to update and re-format the City's zoning code. This process has been ongoing for over two years in Teton County, Driggs, and Victor. More information is available on www.tetonvalleycode.org, or by contacting the City Planning Administrator.
